The Board recognises that seeking to minimise the Company’s environmental impact and adopting a sustainable approach in its major activities is an important part of its overall business objectives. Our responsible investments strategy encompasses our approach to sustainability and social responsibility.
The Board guides the strategic direction of responsible investments and has formally adopted both a sustainability policy and social responsibility programme in 2016. The Investment Manager is charged with implementing the Board’s sustainability policy across the business and is assisted by a Sustainability Advisory Team (‘SAT’) at the Investment Manager group. The SAT currently comprises the Chief Operating Officer and three members of the asset management team, who meet on a regular basis and assist the Investment Manager with the execution of sustainability measures and periodic reporting to the Board.
